Message to clients

Deciding to come to therapy can be a scary decision. Many people feel afraid of being judged or put into a psychiatric hospital. When you reach out, you're looking for someone you can feel comfortable with and feel confident they can help you reach your goals.

The therapeutic relationship is one of the most intimate and important relationships you may enter into. My approach may or may not be the right one for you and it is always my goal to help you reach your goals. That means if we are not the right fit for each other, I will help you find someone who you can feel more comfortable with.

I look forward to helping you reach your goals in whatever way I can do that for you.
